Purple Manis for World Cancer Day

Yesterday, February 4th, was World Cancer Day.

Several of us wore purple nail polish for the day.I wore 3 different purples made by Carpe Noctem Cosmetics- Calypso, which is one of her newest releases, Pimp my Purple, and Man in White, the very first color I ever got from Emily.

Calypso is a really nice lavender holo. I like the green shimmer in it that my pinky picks up.
There is a lot more holo in Pimp my Purple, but the lighting in my apartment does not do it justice. Yesterday was the start of yet another snowpocalypse though- we got 10 inches of snow yesterday- over an inch per hour plus sleet and I was lucky to just be able to get groceries and make it home! There has been a lot of haze and fog, so I apologize for these pictures not being very holo-y.

But look at Man in White. It speaks for itself. It's electric. . . it has blue in it. . . it looks amazing on my skin tone, this color GIVES ME LIFE! This color is what made me say "Holy Purple!" and rush to order from Emily. Unfortunately,that specific pigment is no longer available, but it was recreated as Pro Amico if you want to order some of  your own.

February is also Heart Awareness Month, so I decided to accent my ring fingernail with "We Found Love" by Lumina Lacquer. Unfortunately, I have lost a lot of family members to strokes and heart disease.
